Thirty years into his career, "Weird Al" Yankovic has finally received two of the biggest honors a proprietor of pop parody can receive: His first ever number one record, and a parody of his own work. Unfortunately, the latter comes in the form of new porn gallery that spoofs "Weird Al"'s 1989 cult comedy film UHF.

The new stills come courtesy of WoodRocket.com, a website that's been in the porn parody game for some time, ruining all of your favorite things from Game of Thrones to Spongebob Squarepants (you don't even want to know the awful pun names they came up with for those). As The AV Club points out, a press release for the UHF gallery calls it "one of the strangest, sexiest and most unforgettable things to ever hit the Internet." Minus "sexiest," that description is right, but for all the wrong reasons.

Models Lily Bergman and Jessica Dawn recreate the film's various characters, and yes, one of them does don a "Weird Al" mustache and wig, plus one of his signature Hawaiian shirts. Other "sexy" shots include Stanley Spadowski and his beloved mop, Wheel Of Fish’s Kuni, and Raul of Raul’s Wild Kingdom. Topping it all off is the occasional fly swatter and an homage to the scene where shop teacher Joe Earley (Emo Philips) mangles himself with a table saw.

Yankovic hasn't responded to the UHF porn parody directly, though this tweet — presumably about his new album Mandatory Fun debuting atop the Billboard 200 — does pull double duty: "If you’d told me 30 years ago this would happen, I never would’ve believed it. If you’d told me 2 WEEKS ago, I never would’ve believed it."

Luckily, the eight new videos "Weird Al" just dropped to celebrate the release of Mandatory Fun have provided enough good stuff to help negate all this UHF nonsense. "Weird Al" kicked things off last week with his Pharrell spoof "Tacky," and went on to parody Iggy Azalea with "Handy," Lorde with "Foils" and Robin Thicke with "Word Crimes." Yankovic also lampooned fight songs on "Sports Song," used Southern Culture on the Skids' "Camel Walk" as inspiration for poking fun at humblebragers on "Lame Claim to Fame," and even sent up one of his favorite artists, the Pixies, on "First World Problems." The viral torrent wrapped up on Monday with "Mission Statement," a pastiche of Crosby, Stills & Nash, which contained hints of "Carry On" and "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes."
